I graduated from Angelholm Senior Secondary in 2021 and am playing in the top senior league in Sweden for Helsingborg Basketball Club. Currently when I am not playing basketball and training, I work at Angelholm Elementary school as a special needs teacher. I have also worked for the Swedish Hockey League club Rogle BK /top club in Sweden) as their social media assistant director.
One of my biggest strengths is my knowledge of the game. With this quality I can easily find my teammates in the right places and the right moments, but I also find the opportunities for myself to score. I can find myself positions near the basket with or without the ball. This quality comes in good hands in defence as well. I read the situations and can be at the right place to stop my player and help my teammates. With good timing I can make steals, blocks and force the opponents to make turnovers.
I am very confident with my two-point shooting around the field. When I am open I will shoot and take my chances without hesitation.
I am a player that wants to create a good atmosphere and bring energy to the team both on and off court. I have no problem with being a leader and helping younger and new players. It is important that everybody feels comfortable and involved in the team.
